    Here is a nice photo of several palm trees in Florida. Planting palm trees created an exotic atmosphere in our gardens since they are found almost entirely in the warm countries, and more on the beach, but it is not impossible to have palm trees indoors in colder countries. There are actually 2,600 species of palms, then the choice is wide when comes the time for planting.

Here is a photo of a Japanese tree that looks forward to the end of winter to shine a thousand flowers. Note the faded flower more than remaining on the vine.
